Nichts bleibt für die Ewigkeit: Laut Wissenschaftlern hat das Universum (wahrscheinlich) begrenzte Lebensspanne

Well, fuck.

Scientists are still sorting out the details of last year’s discovery of the Higgs boson particle, but add up the numbers and it’s not looking good for the future of the universe, scientists said Monday.

„If you use all the physics that we know now and you do what you think is a straightforward calculation, it’s bad news,“ Joseph Lykken, a theoretical physicist with the Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory in Batavia, Illinois, told reporters. […]

„It may be that the universe we live in is inherently unstable and at some point billions of years from now it’s all going to get wiped out,“ said Lykken, who is also on the science team at Europe’s Large Hadron Collider, or LHC, the world’s largest and highest-energy particle accelerator.

Tja, in ein paar Milliarden Jahren geht dann das Licht aus. Und morgen ist erst Mittwoch. Ach, die Woche wird nicht besser. Aber das hier ist noch interessant (weil ziemlich abgefahrene SciFi-Vision):

„A little bubble of what you might think of as an ‘alternative‘ universe will appear somewhere and then it will expand out and destroy us,“ Lykken said, adding that the event will unfold at the speed of light.

Simply mind-blowing. Das Universum macht schon krasse Sachen.
